November 18, 2018 15:22


Russia has long been famous throughout the world for its ballet, operas, writers and artists, as well as Russian beauties. Nowadays, Russian models and actresses are also gaining success in the West.
1. Svetlana Khodchenkova

It is not enough to be a very good Russian actress to gain fame in Hollywood. You must embody a truly Russian female image for Americans. That is how Svetlana Khodchenkova has become perhaps the most sought-after young actress in Russia (eight new films with her are expected in Russia), and managed to play in British and Hollywood movie hits. In particular, she starred in the spy thriller “Spy, Get Out” based on the novel by John Le Carré, and “Wolverine: The Immortal” - another offshoot of the box-office wonder movie “X-Men”. Soon she will appear in the lead in the American thriller Conspiracy Rising.

2. Yulia Snigir
Yulia Snigir
is also making an enviable career in Hollywood. She has had roles in two blockbusters, namely Die Hard 5 and Freezer. However, in Russian cinema she usually plays in historical dramas. In particular, she played the Russian Empress in Ekaterina II (2015).

It was great luck for Yulia Snigir to co-star with Bruce Willis in A Good Day to Die Hard of course. But that was her role in Dark Planet directed by Fyodor Bondarchuk that opened the door to Hollywood for her. The actress’ modeling experience, and perfect mastery in the English language, as well as years of promotion, also contributed to her success. Without waiting for new major projects, Yulia Snigir recently starred in the Canadian thriller Freezer and the independent American drama Delirium.
